Avoid the Protagonist!


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As tragedy befalls Xin Siyue, she soon finds herself transmigrated into a novel world as a character. To her disappointment, she became the villainess who obsessively chased after the male protagonist while scheming to tear apart his relationship with his beloved.

To avoid her death route, Xin Siyue carefully avoided the male and female protagonists at every turn. Instead, she went off on her own to enjoy life. But somewhere along the way, she made a mistake– the male protagonist took notice of her!

Xin Siyue’s eyes teared up as she was being kissed in Chen Sinan’s arms. ‘No! This wasn’t in the plot!’

First of all, thank you to the translator, the translation was done very well!!!

... more>>

The story started out promising and I like the FL... but not a fan of the shameless ML that constantly takes advantage of FL.

I know it's a common trope and it's usually tolerable if its just something small, not a recurring theme and FL actually kind of likes ML. However, FL clearly doesn't like ML and has been trying to run away for a long time.

Its not necessarily wrong for a guy to try to become closer with a girl even if she doesn't like him. However, ML should at least respect FL when she says no to him and not be so forceful. It could have still been a great story if ML tried to win over the FL in the right way.

I wish FL would tell her parents or file a restraining order, even though the novel is trying to make it seem romantic ML is literally harassing, threatening and kidnapping her. In the novel its written as if its no big deal (and fortunately there is no r*pe yet, as of c107, unlike many others) but thinking realistically if it was real life ML would be annoying and disgusting. The FL has better options.

It's disappointing because the novel is nice otherwise. Others who are not as sensitive to this trope may enjoy this novel.

This novel is quite interesting and there is some twist in the middle. MC (Xin Siyue) tried very hard to avoid ML (Chen Sinan) to the point she run to another city. She only wants to avoid the bad ending on her family. Unfortunately, ML already noticed her and pursued her shamelessly to bring her back as his wife. There is no family drama or faceslap in novel as this story tells more about their story and a lot of dog foods. People around them gives them blessing accept a... more>> few villain.


ML never truly loves FP (Sheng Wenyang) before. He only feels good about her and like her independence and intelligent. He feels pissed that FP took his feeling for granted and flies off to abroad without any words. ML only accept FP in books as he didnt feels good with blind date his family arranged. In the middle story, MC transmigrate and ML truly falls hard for her. MC once said that even in book, ML never pursue FP like that.

MC accept ML as she realised that she is her own person and not the character in book as ML is also a person.


After they were together, both of them trust each other a lot and even FP cannot shake their relationship. <<less

Passable, but nothing too great. The chapters are very very short so better wait for every 50chapters. The characters are ok but do not catch your eye. Its kinda annoying how everyone care about other people's love life but that's maybe how children is so I try not to be annoyed too much.


I did get annoyed with the insipid writing and stupid characters so I drop this.

This one is a short but sweet novel. There's bit of misunderstanding at the beginning

... more>>

because the FL already read the whole book where she transmigrated and she knew that being in contact with the male protagonist will lead to death flags for her and to her family


But eventually the FL and ML got together and will sprinkle dog food every where hahahahah...

Another thing that I like here is that even though it has a cliche plotline but there are still things that makes it stand above other similar novels


1. the author of the novel also transmigrated in the novel and became the main antagonist, 2. The FL went back to her own world but she really loved the ML so she tried to look for the book and find out what happened after she delivered her baby and 3. She successfully went back to the novel world and reunited with the ML


The only thing that I'm dissatisfied with this is that the extra chapters about the side characters. The author made it a bit open ended. I really want to read more about FL's brother and also of Mo Bei's love story huhuhu...

Overall, a very good read and I might re-read this once it is completed translated. <<less

Oh the ML is such a piece of shit. What is annoying me so much is that he's actually the ML so I know he ends up with her even though he doesn't deserve an inch of her. What BS.

I like the MC. I wish she stood her ground more instead of shrinking back every time the ML glares at her. It's just stupid rly. I wish she'd beat the crap out of him just once. Blergh.

This is a mind numbingly irritating light novel. I tried reading it in hopes to get a better ML that is actually a decent person but I just keep getting a narcissistic possessive little cuck of a ML. Read the first few sentences of the latest chapter (48) and it is seems like he is still a bit*h ass tsundere child still who needs attention so no... I don't recommend reading this LN unless you like to just torture the MC.

my advice to the MC (main character) : call the police. dont go out alone. get a restraining order. is this romance or horror?

MC wakes up as the cannon fodder stalking horse of a novel, tries to get as far away from the psychotic "protagonist" as possible. goes as far as to change cities. Turns out rejection makes him indignant and he has to have it now that its gone. I dnt kno how anyone finds him attractive, he is an arrogant yandere nutjob. Typically when a woman pursues him... more>> (bc treating ppl like trash is SOOOO attractive) he publically humiliates her and finacially ruins her family. So when the MC decides she doesnt want that and DARES to NOT pursue him, he stalks her, ignores her blatent refusals, abducts her, and uses force to keep her from leaving.

The only way I wld have continued to read this story is if he became the villian and the male "friend" side character became the lead. but decent human beings are just friends and aggressive men that show clear warning signs of abuse are hot...? right? <<less

It's kinda hard to keep up with the story, it's overall just stagnant; the plot, the various miscellaneous filler details about filler characters, weird unbalanced progress between ML & FL.
ML is really the type I personally hate the most, overbearing CEO does whatever the F he wants and doesn't put even the law in his eyes type. Author is simply fanning the flames of my hatred for these types by describing him as a high and mighty "I'm above you all" poise from time to time.
FL is the... more>> only one who seems to have common sense a normal logical thought process, the rest are either obsessive as their roles as cannon fodder or just extremely pesky. <<less

I'm glad that someone is translating this! I've read the raw chapters a long time ago and in my opinion, it is a worthwhile read. The though the story was somewhat cliche--FL waking up in a novel world as a villainess and tried to avoid death flags by staying away from the ML but got the interest of the ML instead.

There weren't too much angst here and it was somewhat fluffy and heartwarming near the end of the story.

I hope the TL will keep translating this.

The translation is superb. It's very easy to read, clean and clear. Full marks for this.

But the story... not so good.

The female lead is awesome - very different, down to earth, relatable, hardworking, and so much more. She knows her situation, works on herself and follows her dreams. She couldn't have been any better, IMO. She stands her ground and is a nice person. Not like other transmigrating leads at all and I'm glad about this.

What actually drags the story down, you might ask? It's the male lead. Where the... more>> f*ck did the author pick this guy up from? He doesn't respect the FL's wishes at all and forces hugs and kisses upon her so many times, even while the FL is literally struggling and scolding him. He forcefully hugs her but it's written as if it's cute and trendy to do so. What the f*ck? So the woman's opinions don't matter at all? He chases her so much and is literally like a stalker. The FL doesn't want anything to do with him, she doesn't talk to him (unless her harasses her), and doesn't ask anything from him. But this dude here meddles in her business and expects the FL to praise and kiss him for it even though the FL could have handled it herself. He does sh*t on his own and expects rewards even tho there was no need for him to jump in. What a f*cking weirdo.

I'm dropping this novel because this ass is going to get together with the FL eventually and I won't be able to stomach that. The novel was good till chapter 100 (a forced kiss has already happened) and now, on chapter 105, he forced another one on her after barging into her house at 6 f*cking AM. I can't read this anymore. He drags her to the couch and kisses her more as she's literally finding it hard to breathe and struggling. He's rapey. <<less

It´s ok. I do like the MC. That´s the only reason I´m continuing reading this.

But all other characters (except MC´s brother) are hateful. Really annoying, ridiculous ones that hover over MC like they have nothing else going on in their lives. This novel is littered with very superficial characters, which I don´t mind if only they weren´t so one dimensional.

But the worst part is ML. Gosh what a narcissistic guy. Unfortunately we all know MC will end up with him but I´ll keep reading in hope she deflates his ego... more>> more, which would be the only satisfying thing. <<less

This is sooo worth it to read!!! The beginning is full of humour and misunderstandings. Then you got swept into plot twist that kept you on edge. When the story starts to get sweet, there's an even greater plot twist!

... more>>

The transmigrated girl, Xin Xinyue is a levelheaded character and independent on her own. What she didn't expect was that ML, Chen Sinan truly falls in love with her. While she so desperately avoids him, he keeps tabs on her and even already planned their future together by designing a house for them both lol. So sweet! Even the former FL and another antagonist character can't come between them. The last arc's plot twist is so unexpected it's actually very heart-wrenching and tissue-inducing :')


I'm just so glad they have a happy ending! <<less

I changed my last review because I read the raws with machine translation and the few things I understand are Chen Shinan is a posesive guy. I don't like him at all, at first I was enchanted by this novel but as you read the next chapters the plot will get worse.

I've read up to chap 10 (✌tnx for the free chaps 😍)

This novel is a new approach in transmigrated stories.

I'm getting tired with the ever predictable plots of transmigrated novels this days 😵

Thankfully, this novel freed me from boredom!

I have high expectations on this one. Keep up the good work too, translator-sama ♥️

Only reason my rating isn't one star is because of the MC. Other than her? It was all aggravating. ML is a self-absored dirtbag whose only redeeming qualities are his wallet and his face. He translates everything MC does into something that has something to do with liking him. I'd say he's a tsundere, but that's an insult to real tsundere.

Other than that, the people around them don't seem to understand the concept of no and changing and think MC only breathes because of ML's existence. They don't even seem... more>> to understand the gravity of the situation that MC was in a hospital.

Just, I tried. Did not work. But the MC was cool. <<less

Love the idea of this novel. The main character doesn’t have the memories of her new body and she doesn’t seam to be quick witted but more lovable then anything. Instead of trying to play a game that’s stacked in the other favour she is trying to avoid the game. I love it!!

ML is so disgusting, I couldn't stand him. I hate him so that I wanted drug him and sent him to Female protagonist. I am disappointed that likable MC choose narcissistic and scum possessive ML. Did she forget how this disgust guy humiliated original host. I just realized women truly like scum and narcissistic men. No wonder they always get betray by them. No pity for women, served them right.

This story is exhausting.

Majority of the chapters have to do with characters gossiping and misunderstanding situations. The MC doesn't help the situation either because while she constantly has to defend herself saying she's not interested in the ML anymore she also uses him liking someone as an excuse or rejects someone by saying she only likes ML and wants nothing to do with anyone who knows him. Basically she's misleading to characters who already view her in a bias way.

I'm glad she eventually transfers away from her college, between the... more>> gossip and harassment it was pretty toxic, I just wish she wasn't so obsessed with the novels ending because of how she treats the ML as a result, he really doesn't deserve how she treats him. Though it's because of this that he seems to fall for her...

Not sure how I feel about the ML. He's a pretty cold guy who's focused and could potentially be a future workaholic, while MC's attitude is what leads him to like her I really don't believe he deserves all the hate she gives him. The novel's FL hasn't shown up yet, but what's been shown depicts an unbalanced relationship with the FL liking him way more than he likes her.

In the end I like the idea of this story but I need a break. The ups and downs are exhausting. The constant arguing is exhausting. Going to hold off reading the rest of the story until it's fully translated. <<less

Dropped at chapter 38. I mean the original 38th chapter not the translator's 38th.

✔The Female Lead's atittude at the beginning is okay but it gets annoying later on when she kept denying the male lead because she's fvckng afraid she'll be killed by the male lead like what happened in the novel.

Why don't she think why did it happen it the first place? It's because in the novel, the original killed the ML's child. Why would she be afraid if she won't follow the story line! So forced!

It's nearly 3... more>> years since her transmigration and yet she still thinks everyone is just an 'NPC'. ✔Male Lead. Your generic male lead. Can't handle it when the girl who originally chased him stopped and ended up falling in love with her *rolls eye*

✔Plot. Your very usual romance + transmigration. I'd like to rate it 3 but that would be too bias because it's still an OKAY romance. So 4/5 <<less

I'll always applaud the translator for an amazing job. It's easy to read, and having their interaction is what keeps me coming back to this story.

Now for the actual review, this story follows the typical "I transmigrated and now I'll change, but I'll expect everyone else to stay the same". It's not exceptionally good, but it's not that bad. The good part is Chen Sinan's family. They're hilarious. The bad part is Chen Sinan.

... more>>

Considering how he manhandled the MC and always bothered her, you'd think the author finds this creepy behavior acceptable. Sinan has kidnapped her, kissed her, threatened her, thrown her aside, sta lked her, etc. He's trash, and I don't think he deserves to be ML. Nevermind the fact that he has the original FL, Sheng Wenyang, in an ambiguous relationship with him because he's allergic to clarifying anything.

One of the novels I am currently following now! I especially love the MC. She is very cute and funny.

If I can describe her and how she avoids the protagonist, it's like trying not to look at sweets if you are in a diet. Somehow, sweets will appear everywhere the more you avoid it.
